It's hard to believe that this classic-tasting Red Mountain blend came from such a hot year. This wine exudes a lot of dark plum, black cherry, lush cocoa, black licorice, earth, and a touch of cassis. There is quite a bit of that unique Red Mountain spice mix of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and ginger. The palate is rich, lush, and full yet not overdone. It shows restraint but also has a power to it that is unmistakably terroir-driven. The flavors of chocolate, dark fruits, spice and a touch of vanilla a such a good combination you'll find yourself sipping on this for hours; which is never a bad thing.

Cabernet Sauvignon makes up just over half of this wine, with the balance mostly Merlot and Syrah along with pinches of other varieties. Aromas of cherry meats, vanilla, wood spice and game lead to medium-bodied, well-balanced fruit flavors. A tart finish caps it off.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, there are 32,200 cases of the 2015 CMS, a medium-bodied, open-knit, savory wine that offers up aromas and flavors of berry fruits and soil. It's a simple, somewhat ephemeral red that's competently made and decidedly inexpensive.
